LIVES UP TO ITS NAME!

While driving down to Yummy House, don't let the questionable neighborhood throw you off - the long queue of customers is proof of the restaurant's popularity. For appetizers, the egg rolls and spicy salt & pepper shrimps topped with crushed roasted garlic were superb. We followed this up... read more

We had recently visited the Yummy House on Hillsborough, which was excellent, but we hadn't been to the original Yummy House on Waters in a while. It wasn't crowded at all, so we got excellent service. We ordered the 3 X 22 lunch special, which is a choice of three dishes from an extensive menu, each dish containing two generous... More

Was just featured on dirty dining. Had over 130 violations including dead rats and rat feces in multiple areas of the kitchen as well as not keeping food at regulated temperatures. I used to own a restaurant and 130 is A LOT of violations. I used to be a loyal Yummy House customer as the food was fabulous but their... More

The waitress has attitude, very bad service, with out even taking complete order started saying white rice costs extra $1, and showed all restless and bad attitude, she ruined our evening. Never saw a Chinese place charging for white rice with entry with dinner. Stay away, food or place not worth. This place is all set to go further down... More

The title says it all.mif you are in for a good Chinese meal, this is the only place to go. Everything is excellent. Bring your own drinks.... And it is cheap.

My doctor who was born and raised in China told me of this place and that it was authentic to what she is accustomed to in China. We have had dinner and lunches there as well as take-outs. All are just as good as the other. Portions are large, flavors are exquisite and it reminds me of the Chinese restaurants... More

Came up to the Tampa area for the Chinese Lantern Festival. Had heard good things about the Yummy house in Sarasota, so decided to dine here with friends before the festival. We arrived around 5 on a Sunday and were seated right away. The dining area seemed clean and comfortable. There were four of us. We each ordered a different... More

We visited the Tampa Yummy House after hearing so much from friends about the Yummy House in Sarasota. We were told that you must have a reservation as the waits without reservations could be very long. We made a 7:20 PM reservation about a week early and were seated immediately upon arriving. The restaurant is beautiful, both outside and in.... More

We visited the place after seeing the Chinese Lantern Festival. Went inside and was seated right away at 9:10 PM. This lady who works at the restaurant told our family to order fast and right away since they "stop cooking at 9:30 PM." We were very hungry, aggravated people who just wanted to relax and get some food. We almost... More
